A third-generation East Coast singer-songwriter, Rudy Pacé has been compared to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. His catalogue of music includes hard-hitting brutally honest commentary on very real issues to heartbreaking folk ballads that anyone who has been in love or has fallen hard out of it will relate.
While a solo act at times, Pacé is also the frontman for the Halifax-based Rudy & the Pacé Family Orchestra. The band’s name is a tribute to Pacé’s great grandfather Emilio, who migrated from Italy to Canada in the 1920s and went onto form the well-known Maritime act Emilio Pacé and his Family Orchestra. The band released their first EP Vanguard in 2019.
